Objective Assessment Protocols

The interactive technology and clinically proven protocols allow the clinician to objectively assess patients performing tasks ranging from essential daily living activities through high-level athletic skills. The objective data aids in the design of effective treatment and/or training programs focused on the specific sensory and motor components underlying a patient's functional limitations.

The Long Forceplate includes the following standardized assessment protocols:

Sensory Dysfunction Voluntary Motor Impairments Functional Limitations
modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction on Balance (mCTSIB)

Limits of Stability (LOS)

Rhythmic Weight Shift (RWS)

Weight Bearing Squat (WBS)

Unilateral Stance (US)

Sit-To-Stand (STS)

Walk Across (WA)

Tandem Walk (TW)

Step/Quick Turn (SQT)

Step Up/Over (SUO)

Forward Lunge (FL)

Systematic Training Protocols

Interactive, functional training exercises using visual biofeedback, coupled with sensitive, real-time monitoring of movement motivates patients to achieve greater balance faster. Exercise protocols available on the Balance Master can be tailored to meet individual patient needs and can be progressed as the patient's capabilities improve.

The following training protocols are available:

  • Seated balance/strength training
  • Standing balance/weight bearing training
  • Mobility training
  • Closed chain training

Tasks can be adapted and/or enhanced with System Accessories.
